We provide an active mediation. Through reality testing and thought provoking, we help attorneys settle the case of their clients and/or garner knowledge to equip them better for a legal procedure when such outcome is necessary.
We also assist attorneys by managing client expectations and help clients deflate their over-optimistic, dogmatic positions.
Your business may benefit tremendously from using mediation — rather than litigation — to resolve conflicts. Small business owners are just as likely as major corporations to run into conflict with neighboring businesses, employees, customers, vendors, or with their own business partners, yet unlike corporations, small business often lack public relations, human resources, and legal departments to help them deal with these conflicts.
Mediation offers another way to resolve conflict — one that can help you and the other party come to a genuine understanding and find a resolution that addresses both of your needs and interests.
Mediation is a structured, non-adversarial process that allows a neutral third party to assist disputing parties in reaching a mutually acceptable solution. The mediation process can be a less expensive, informal, and a more meaningful alternative to the traditional trial process, largely because of the efforts of trained mediators and the resolution being decided by the participants.
We are certified to mediate in court appointed cases.
Family mediation helps sort out disputes – without involving big legal fees or going through a long drawn-out court battle – instead it finds practical solutions that feel fair.
Our mediation service protect the interest of the family in cases of divorce, child custody, inheritance, business interests, responsibility for family members and the resolution of general conflicts.
We understand that every family has its problems, a happy, peaceful family-life can only really be achieved with the perfect combination of compromise, order, mutual respect and understanding.
We provide coaching to our clients on their life projects. When we are immersed in our circumstances and we do not stop to think, it is easy to see just the complications in life and be blind to what is positive. We can change our attitude towards those difficulties by breaking paradigms and opening new perspectives of the same situation. We can help you accomplish this.
